just wondering why you like Pokrajac so much...an insight? i'm sure i'll end up betting every fight on the card and after seeing that he is 1-3 in the ufc with loses to bonnar, te huna, and matyushenko and his only win again james irvin he doesn't seem like a guy i would want to lay the cash on as such a big fav. i don't really know much about todd brown other than he lost to tim boetsch.....like sakara and sanchez as well...weidman is getting a lot of hype but after watching his last fight on you tube, i was not impressed...he's suppose to be a world class wrester but he was put on his back multiple times in that fight, stepped right into a knee bar attempt, and couldn't hold top position against a guy that will never see the ufc or other top flight mma organizations.

I don't know a thing about UFC, but I'm also on Sanchez and Calloway.

Calloway because I think a win by him will help fuel what's becoming a solid rivalry, and I'm a big pendulum bettor.

Sanchez because his opponent seems over-valued,  imhv,

GL!

Yeah, I understand the initial reaction to seeing a fighter who's 1-3 in his last 4 getting a -250 price tag, but I think the line is that way for good reason..

Pokrajac's had the far superior competition (and more than held his own..he dropped Te Huna a couple of times in their fight, tagged Bonnar pretty good as well), and the guy's just a beast on his feet, and has some nice submissions as well. He's shown questionable take down defence before, but was able to get up a number of times against Bonnar in his last fight.

And I just don't think Todd Brown belongs in the UFC.  In his sole fight in 2010 he gassed, and lost a totally lackluster decision to Tim Boetsch.  Tim Boetsch!  I don't think Brown has the skill or gas tank to avoid a KO/sub.

And good luck to you also!  Gotta love fights in the middle of the week. 

Anent, GL.  I dunno if Kampmann is over-valued, he's an awesome fighter, but I think Diego will work like a madman and win the decision

You are probably right about Pokrajac being a better fighter than Todd Brown but i am staying away from this fight since Todd Brown did take that Tim Boetsch fight on only a weeks notice, he does have a 15-2 record (against inferior opponents as you said) and this is very close to a home fight for him as he is from Indiana and his family, friends and students will be there.......hmmm....I am unintentionally talking myself into backing the Bulldog!

I'm actually seeing quite alot of people out there taking Brown.  You make some good points, but at only +200 I don't see it yet.  Not that there's a whole lot of value in me taking Pokrajac at -250, I just think he gets the job done!

But who knows.  I got into this weird trend over the last little while of dropping the ball on my first bet of the night, which would usually be some big favourite on the undercard (like Mike Brown a few weeks ago..ugh..)

I doubt that!  I've lost maybe 25.00 on UFC since 2005.

Thanks for the name correction.

Kampmann's price has dropped a little.
